Thanks! I didn't see the email yet. Did it get through OK?

Oh, sorry. I guess the crash-report was too big and airdrop didn't work. I will send the files again without the report.

I did, thanks - sorry I didn't get a chance to look at them yet. I'll get to it as soon as I can.

Hello, it looks like it might have been doing something, but the progress reporting was not working. Please could you try this version?

Hey Carl, it finally works! Thank you so much for your help!
The writing processe took a while and I had to start it again because the sleep mode seems to stop it, but now all DCPs seem to be on the harddrive. In total it's 6 teasers and one feature. This is how it looked like when the process was finished.

Great! Yes indeed the speed is fairly terrible and something I hope to improve in the future. Did you get progress reporting with this version?

Yes, every step seems to work quite normal. It says how long formatting will be and when copying starts it's the same. At the end that window shows up telling you that the process worked. And I was able to end the programme. So everything seems to work as it should be I guess.

Great, I will tidy these changes up and put them into the main branch of DCP-o-matic so they appear in the next release. Thanks for all the testing!
